I have been using the last version of SoftMaker Office for a word processor, and for displaying a spreadsheet emailed to me every so often. I have just been
notified that the 2015 version which I pre-ordered is now available. I don't know what's in the Windows version, but I am completely satisfied with this Linux
version. I know that many Linux users refuse to buy any software, but I find this far superior to LibreOffice. I can use this without having to take special
courses or something to learn the intricacies of Libre.
I have no idea what you mean by "macros." Maybe the screwy stuff that Libre makes you decipher? I don't look for a publishing program, I just want a
word processor that I can use with no BS. That's SoftMaker.
